Voi Unit  October   9, 2017 The morning began with the keepers following the usual routine of feeding the babies their milk bottle after which they joined up with the four Ex Orphans for some supplement feeding around the Msinga Hill area before concentrating on the days browsing activities.

The Voi keepers separated into teams today. Some are looking after the orphans while others look for the three lost orphans Ajali, Nguvu and Pasaka, while a couple look for the 2 year old orphan calf that was taken away by its sister yesterday following their mothers death. Sadly none of the searches were successful.

In the evening preparations were made by the team who were about to receive an orphan male baby buffalo. The baby was brought to the stockades at about 6pm by the Amboseli Veterinary unit. It was quite aggressive and unsettled and it would probably take a while before it would calm down.
